    Congestive Heart Failure Treatment

    Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a very common condition with which millions of North Americans are diagnosed each year. It is the stage at which “heart failure” has led to a build up of fluid around the heart. This build up affects the efficiency of the heart muscle to pump blood throughout your body. Early treatment and management of congestive heart failure can have very positive affects on this condition, slowing its progression and possibly reversing it entirely.
